One of the things I liked about Shinya Hashimoto was he was just a big fat dude that would kick the shit out of people. Or ddt you to death. Or throw you till you couldn’t get up. He didn’t look like a guy that would mess you up, but looks can be deceiving, you know?
Man how bad do you want to see him vs Samoa Joe? What an awesome match that would have been.
What the hell, here’s a new Shinsuke!
So I’ve watched the new It a couple of times now and I feel like each time my opinion drops a little bit. I’m not going to get into it completely but I’ve read that book a bunch and I know the story front to back. So I’m happy to see it done well but there’s definitely things I’d have done differently, you know?
I think my biggest problem is Pennywise’s look. I think he looks fine when he’s a scary clown, but they seemed to forget he’s a clown. He needs to look fun until he switches, otherwise he’s not going to get kids to come to him. It’s like they realized Tim Curry scared people before in the original, so just went with the scary part, and completely forgot about the other part where he’s nice to get people to come to him. So I think it would have been better if he was only scary looking a little bit in the first movie, and almost the entirety of the second movie. I get there was a chance there wouldn’t be a second movie, but come on.
So yeah here’s a drawing of Pennywise.
Toni Storm was pretty impressive in the Mae Young tournament…hopefully she ends up back in NXT, I’d like to see her more.
I know most people kinda feel Kane wasn’t as good after he lost the mask, but if you look at it, ost of the crazier things he did come after he lost it. But on the other hand, it’s hard to argue against red Michael Meyers Kane…either way, I have always been a fan. Everyone assumes he’s only in the Royal Rumble match to take the loss, and I don’t think I can disagree that’s what is going to happen, but man, how crazy would it be if he won?
I’m interested to see what the WWE does with Sonya Deville in the main roster. As far as I can remember, I don’t remember any women with an MMA type style, so I am curious to see how it goes. Hopefully Absolution is sort of like the Wyatt Family was with Braun; get Sonya and Mandy a little time to develop before they break out on their own.
So I said I’ve drawn Bret a bunch but never drew him well. With this one I still can’t say if I have drawn him well…it’s better but something doesn’t seem right to me. I dunno man, Bret is just hard to get right! I give it a 4 out of 10.
This is my last post for the year. I’ll be back next year with a handful of drawings I did in 2017, new prints, probably new business cards and more artwork and stuff! Thanks for a great 2017 everyone!
